Ajit Srivastava

Dr. Ajit Srivastava joined the Department of Physics in the spring of 2016. His research is in the field of novel atomically thin materials. He is interested in strong coupling between light and matter to control charge carriers and manipulate their internal degrees of freedom such as spin and pseudo-spin. His research also explores the role of geometry and topology in determining electronic and optical properties of such materials. One goal of his research is to realize non-trivial geometry and topological states of light/matter using light-matter interactions. View Faculty Profile »
